Importer’s Notes

This ancient family firm has become a dependable source for some heart-warmingly traditional examples of Alsace wines. They are full-flavored, varietally distinct and properly dry. They offer a price-quality ratio that is hard to beat.

You will perk up eagerly at the first whiff of the textbook Gewurz nose. The improved viticulture manifests itself in the uncommonly spicy palate, while the wine’s rich texture but reduced sucrosity make it a better-than-ever match for the traditional Asian fare and smoked fish.

Wine Enthusiast – “Wet earth, jasmine and honeysuckle on the nose carry though onto the palate. Here they are met with apple sweet-sourness that creates balance and turns this into a very appetizing proposition. The body is light but dense with flavor, the off-dry finish is long and moreish.” (92 Pts)
